Once again I am taking the absolutely crazy challenge of NaNoWriMo (50000 words in 30/30 nights and days). This will be my third year participating in this event.
My friends think I am going nuttier every year I do it.
This year I have armed myself with a different medium called Liquid Story Binder. I found out about it while reading “NaNo Prep and Writing Kalla” earlier this morning. Thanks to Amber I immediately searched for the program on Google, found it, and now its downloaded onto my computer. They also give a handy-dandy user guide on how to use the program. If you are unsure about downloading the program just read the user manual first.
Or be like me and download the whole shebang before reading a lick of words.
That is pretty as much as far as prepping materials, besides my usual collection of paper, pencils and notebooks.
Unlike my previous years of participating in NaNoWrimo this year where I have been a pantser this year I am actually trying to be an prepper. Which when you get to know me is a seriously laughable idea. I do not do “organized” or “clean” or “neat” or…well you get the idea. But now you all can cheer me on (or egg me for not getting the word goal, your choice) because I have added NaNoWriMo widgets on the top left of my blog page! *cheers, confetti*
What else can I say? *thinks for a moment*
I will be honest and tell you that I have a faint seed for my story. I know the main characters meet in a bookstore. October will be my planning month. I am looking forward to the weird searches that I will be doing.
If you are a NaNoWriMo participant this year please add me! I’m Moonlight Raven. Mike, over at mikecoville.wordpress.com (see related links) is also adding buddies onto NaNoWriMo!
